Akron vs Michigan State Prediction & Pick

Akron was very fortunate to beat FCS St. Francis (PA) 30-23 last week in head coach Joe

Moorhead’s debut. Michigan State state was up just 21-13 entering the fourth quarter in their 35-13 win over Western Michigan. Quarterback Payton Thorne passed for 233 yards with 4 TDs and 1 INT, but completed just 12-of-24 passes as the Spartans were actually out-gained by the Broncos.

Michigan State lost outstanding LB Darius Snow (knee) for the season in the victory. Starting safety Xavier Henderson was also injured and may miss the Akron game.

Final Score Prediction: Michigan State: 41 | Akron: 10

Akron vs Michigan State Best Bet

Michigan State has some troubling ATS numbers in recent seasons following their game against Western Michigan (0-4 ATS). The Spartans should bounce back with better play against an inferior opponent in Akron, but coach Moorehead is a former SEC head coach who will get the Zips going after years of bottom of the league finishes. Just not as much progress this week in another defeat.

Bet: Akron +34.5 (-110)
